Is a brow lift or Eyelid surgery best for sagging Eyelids?
The relative components contributing to a tired or sad look around the eyes needs to be assessed by an experienced surgeon and I think that an artistic eye is helpful to relate the eyes and brow to the dimensions and harmony of the other structures of the face. Sometimes the appearance of heaviness in the upper Eyelids is more to do with sagging or drooping in the brow rather than the upper Eyelids themselves and in fact no surgery of the upper Eyelids would then be necessary. Often there is a component in the brow and the upper Eyelid and then perhaps both of these need to be addressed.
The eyes are usually the first thing you notice about someone and as they often reveal the early signs of ageing, Mr Ahmad sees many men and women seeking treatment to improve the appearance of the eye area. On the upper lid, the issue is folding, creasing and hooding which obscures the natural shape of the eyelid, and on the lower lid, it is usually a case of bagging and pouching as the skin and muscles become more lax. Eyelid surgery, known as a blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can tackle either the upper or lower lid or both, depending on the patient’s individual requirements. There are certain things that eyelid surgery can’t achieve, such as remove dark circles, eradicate crow’s feet around the eyes, or tackle a drooping brow, but Mr Ahmad will explain this all fully at the consultation. There are a number of alternative procedures he can offer aimed at treating these concerns.
